. check out this poll taken by cnn this week. about four out of ten americans think president bush was smart to invade iraq. six out of ten say it was a dumb idea. ten years have passed and the country still cannot agree. march 20 2003: the u=s unleashes a shock and awe bombardment of baghdad. >> "on my orders, coalition forces have begun striking targets of military importance." >> reporter: within three weeks american ground troops are in the capital. saddam hussein's statue comes down. only 138 americans have died. and under a banner saying "mission accomplished," president bush declares. >> in the battle of iraq, the united states and its allies have prevailed. >> but the fighting goes on, even after saddam hussein is captured at the end of the year. the new year brings new violence. the battle for fallujah. the infamous abu ghraib pictures. the american death toll reaches 1=thousand by the end of 2004. 2=thousand by the end of 2005. nearly 3=thousand by the end of 2006, when saddam hussein is executed. president bush orders more troops: five brigades with 20=thousand soldiers
that an insurgency would rise. president bush had the courage to change that strategy in the face of a failure that we were facing. in less than two years, that success was turnaround turned around in the sense that it was 90% reduction in violence, which was very significant for achievement. at the end of the day, the major frustration we are dealing with it in 2009, the obama administration came in and changed the policy. they disengaged this and kept it at distance, and we found ourselves at the end of 2011. unlike what we have done in germany and japan and india where we kept things in place to help strengthen and secure government, and that did not take place. jon: president obama has often mentioned in speeches that was under his administration that the war in iraq ended. >> i think that he was saying it was the correct decision. what happened after the overthrow, obviously it didn't turn out the way that we expected. i think in part, it is due to a poor military strategy. but it was also an incorrect political strategy on our part. i think that we should have tried to put authority into

the failures of the bush years and so on, that was a red flag and you are seeing the reaction to it. >> bill: okay. but having talked to karl rove many, many times on this program, i can tell you that he is a guy who doesn't want a conservative litmus test to limit some candidates who may be more moderate and appeal to a wider circle. he doesn't want that kind of party where i think sarah palin does want it i think republicans are are going to have to come to grips with that. >> well, they have to decide in some cases whether they're willing to settle for a candidate who has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees that politicians make. they end up enhappy with them as well. this
